The new LEKA Toras 35 electric hammer is built on Lekatech’s patented linear electric motor technology and is the result of many years of dedicated research and development. 

It is designed for use with electric powered carrier machines and, according the OEM, can deliver “huge benefits on urban construction projects and in quarry or mine environments, above or below ground”.

The LEKA Toras 35 is based on tubular linear (permanent magnet) electric motor technology that is designed to withstand the harsh conditions of breaker hammer use. The structure, despite weighing only 540kg, is constructed with a minimum number of wear parts.

Standout performance features of the Toras 35 include a 70% reduction in energy use when factoring in overall energy consumption of the equipment, and double the blow impact energy of hydraulic hammers of the same size.

It also offers a 98% reduction in oil consumption compared to hydraulic hammers.

Antti Anttila, CEO at Lekatech, said: “For an operator, the effectiveness of the hammer is often the most important feature of a working machine.

“With LEKA Toras 35, significantly higher performance values are reached than with conventional technologies. It is also highly flexible, with adjustability being integral to its development.

“Every blow and every gap between the blows can be adjusted individually and dynamically enabling unprecedented possibilities for hammering applications.”

The launch of the Toras 35 builds on the development of the company’s original mode, known simply as the Lekatech Electric Hammer. 

“Through the latest development, the LEKA Toras 35, we have developed an electric hammer which further revolutionizes the breaking and hammering industry,” said Antti.

“It has been tried and tested in demolition, hard rock quarrying and many other applications, and we are now proud to introduce it to professionals and companies who will truly benefit from its unique and market changing features.

“We feel that given the historical importance of Hillhead to the global hammering and breaking industry, that the show will be the perfect environment to introduce our latest development to the world.”

The LEKA Toras 35, which will be showcased on Hillhead exhibition stand S7, is now available in a limited number of countries in Europe and its strategically located partners throughout the world.
